Free Money

Quick story - At our house, if the kids want money, they can dig weeds to earn it.  Brigham is a prodigious weed picker and always has money.  Paul "doesn't do" weeds and never has money.  Yesterday we were out looking at some chicks (the baby bird variety), and when I turned around, Brigham was handing at quarter to the little girl next to him.  When we got to the car, Paul asked Brigham for some money.  Brigham's response?  "No, you can dig weeds.  That girl couldn't.  I only give money to people who can't dig weeds."  And, when I told the story to John, he choked up a little and said, "He's a Republican!  I love him!"

That is awesome, Tara. Hillarious, and yet so heartening for the future.
